Friendship Centers of Emmet County is a non-profit organization designated as the Council on Aging for Emmet County. We provide need-based, simple assistive care services to seniors in Emmet County, allowing older adults to remain living in their own home.

How We Can Help

We work hand in hand to help all senior citizens thrive! Each senior is unique in his or her abilities and needs. Friendship Centers seeks to meet each senior where they are. Person-centered planning allows us to focus on the desires or goals of the senior and then work to address those needs with information, services, and opportunities.

Check Us Out

The primary reason people access the Friendship Centers in Petoskey, Brutus and Pellston is to meet with friends, old and new, as they participate in activities that enrich their lives. No membership required.
